Thanks Alan but neither image is in focus.

I’d like to compare the dies so need sharp pictures showing the details in focus, crisp and clear.

Only thing that is odd on the original is that the O.T.C has been removed/erased, don't know why, hopefully someone may know why.

A contender for a genuine one with a perfectly imprinted reverse. All of the copies shown have the same lumpy back as if they have been cast. The slider is a better shape, a slight crimp mark and longer with the whole badge being in a bronzed finish.

I’ve reduced shadows and brightened the image for you.

The recent purchase has just arrived and weighs 13g and is a perfect strike without the messy backs of the fake.
